Cruising and Boozing Aboard Carnival Horizon

All aboard! Carnival Horizon, one of Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ships, offers a variety of Caribbean cruise sailings, round trip from Miami, with exotic port destinations such as Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. With unique activities to enjoy on board, such as the onboard waterpark, Dr. Seuss WaterWorks, there is something for everyone although you will definitely appreciate your stateroom’s comfy bed at the end of your day.

Book a stateroom with a balcony, such as Carnival Horizon’s Cove Balcony staterooms, which are located close to the waterline, so you can experience amazing up-close view of the wake and sea foam as the ship cruises along.


There are also several adult-only activities to enjoy on board as well, such as visiting the many specialty bars and lounges. While onboard the Carnival Horizon, we recommend the following drinking destinations.

Drinking Destinations Aboard Carnival Horizon

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse


Dig into Guy Fieri’s famous BBQ brisket or baby back ribs, and quench your thirst with the ship’s all-new, exclusive line of Parched Pig craft brews – Smoked Porter, Farmhouse Ale, Hoppy IPA and Toasted Amber, all brewed on board the ship.

Havana Bar & Pool


The Havana Bar & Pool is an exclusive resort retreat by day, but, when the sun goes down, the bar becomes a hot dance spot.  Grab a seat at the bar and order up handcrafted Cuban cocktails like a traditional Daiquiri or classic Mojito.

Alchemy Bar


Alchemy Bar is a unique vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy” that specializes in mixing up enticing combinations with select spirits, fresh juices, infused syrups, and spices.  Or, let the bar’s mix-masters prescribe a custom elixir just for you.

The Library Bar


This intimate wine lounge features state-of-the-art self-serve dispensers. It’s a perfect spot to pour yourself a bit of vino and unwind with quiet conversation, a board game, or by simply plucking a new book off the shelves for a good read.

Serenity Adult-Only Retreat


At the Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, you’ll find complete peace, sea breezes, swaying hammocks and, of course, a nearby bar with frozen concoctions.

Tip:  Consider adding a Beverage Program to your cruise experience, such as “CHEERS!” where unlimited adult beverages can be enjoyed for a set fee per day, or, Drink Packages for your stateroom, such as Malibu Rum Mixer or Grey Goose Vodka Mixer Packages.

For other ways to relax on your Caribbean cruise vacation, head to the Carnival Horizon’s Cloud 9 Spa.

Cloud 9 Spa

This is an oasis built from the ground up for relaxation, from a full complement of traditional spa services like massages, facials, body wraps to Cloud 9’s Thalassotherapy Pool, a therapeutic salt water oasis, and Thermal Suite.  The Thermal Suite, based on the traditional Turkish Baths, has different aromatic steam and sauna grottos that cleanse the body with gentle heat. For a special experience, relax on one of the heated chaise lounges.

Tip:  Take a tour of the spa facilities before the ship leaves Miami for special ‘Embarkation Day’ discount offers on services.  Highly recommended is the Thermal Suite Daily or Weekly Pass.;  @carnival
